Format: Paperback
My 3rd grade class can't get enough of this book. Easy text to read and the illustrations make the book. It covers several different animals wearing clothing that would never suit them. For example...sheep wearing a wool sweater, a giraffe wearing neck ties, a chicken wearing pants (Where does the egg go?), just to name a few. Maybe animals shouldn't wear clothing, but your child will definitely LOVE this book. You'll probably enjoy it too!

This is our family's favorite book! The writer & the illustrator do a fantastic job of exposing the idea of what would happen if animals wear clothing - it is an adorable book that makes our whole family laugh LOUDLY!

I enjoyed this book as a child, although even then I remember thinking that the 1970s clothing looked goofy on any one, not just animals.

This book is a classic, right down to the vintage illustrations.

Format: Hardcover
This deceptively simple read-aloud will appeal to all from ages 3 to 93. Each two-page spread features one animal wearing some very inappropriate piece of clothing, accompanied by a quick explanation of why it's wrong for this animal to wear this particular article. For example, a kangaroo would find a coat with pockets "quite unneccessary" and a moose might find suspenders hard to "manage." The illustrations are a particular delight; the animals have very droll expressions and the problems are depicted with some subtlety which will encourage dialogue during a read aloud. This 1970 title truly has stood the test of time!

We first read this book when our son was 3 years old. He loved it then and now 3 years after he still enjoys it. It is funny and entertaining not only to the kids but also to the adults. It is also appropriate for the early readers too: they will read the book without even noticing it! That is the book that we will keep in our collection for years to come!

A great book, stylish illustrations done in a very unique manner. Excellent quality of printing, good paper and colour reproduction.
Good for toddlers and preschoolers. We get to discuss what happens to animals with clothing on and learn some more words that can be used to describe the situation.

This is a clever book that is enjoyable for both adults and children. We have been enjoying this book for years and even at age 7 my son still cracks up laughing at the funny illustrations! Love it!

This is such a cute book, my kids could not stop laughing the entire book. This book has different animals like a moose wrapped up in suspenders, giraffe that has on so many neck ties, opossum that hangs upside down with upside down clothes on. A funny poke at why animals would be so funny if they tried to wear clothing like humans. Animals definitely should not wear clothing!

I highly recommend this book!
